  2. Hi all – we just wanted to let you know about some changes coming …

    As you will be aware, DoingFlorida is currently spread across two different sites; DoingFlorida.com and DoingFloridaForums.com. We will soon be changing this so that everything will be together under one site; DoingFlorida.com.

    The vast majority of our members and visitors already view our daily news on the main DoingFlorida.com site (or via our Facebook page) rather than on the forum. From this week, the daily news will appear only on the main DoingFlorida.com site, and this forum will shortly be closed down. We want to thank all our members for your fantastic support over the past eleven years, it has been great to get to know so many fellow Florida fans! If you would be interested in joining a DoingFlorida Facebook Group please let us know - it would be great to keep the community together - we will start a thread in the Members Forum so you can let us know what you think.

    It's the end of an era but the start of a new one and we very much hope you will join us!

    Best Wishes from the DoingFlorida Team

    Back in September last year Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs opened its doors. The 1940s era float plane hangar turned bar was inspired by the fictional character Jock Lindsey, a seaplane pilot in the film “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Although Jock only appeared in a mere one minute of film, Disney’s Imagineers used his character to develop a backstory for the bar.

    The story of The Hangar Bar builds out Jock’s character, giving him a past as a seasoned circus pilot-turned adventurer. Later on in his life, he made his home at Disney Springs, falling in love with the place when he flew over the Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth and opened the bar, which is chock full of memorabilia from his past. Here Disney’s Imagineers share how they developed the project and created the bar.
